I hope that you are enjoying our new website, I am hoping to have some photos in the ‘Wedding’ section soon. I LOVE the map and really think that this by far the nicest site map on any website that I have seen, and that is not because it is on our site but because of the talent of Jennifer from Pure Cornish Design who created it.
This is the time of year that I most dread – no guests, a lot of paperwork and even more housework to catch up on.
There is so much to do that I don’t know where to start so I procrastinate. This generally starts with the internet, you can spend a lot of time on the internet going from site to site. I look at other glamping sites and I am still amazed at what is out there. What does amaze me the most, is how many claim to be family yet still charge for highchairs and cots, surely if you accept children then you should provide furniture for them to sit on and sleep on/in? We have expanded our range of children’s equipment this year, we have always provided highchairs and cots, some games and books, a backpack (with sun and rain cover) also toy tractors but in addition we have bought a pushchair and a little table (with games attached) for toddlers.
This year has been incredible, for the first year we are totally independent and loving it. The new tents have been enjoyed by guests and we are really pleased with the furnishings. A few new changes are on the cards for next year. We have welcomed guests old and new and the lengths of stays have been impressive, the usual short breaks (although not very many) and 7 nights but a lot of 10 and 11 nights and even Paul, Rebecca and the girls for 17 nights! The fact that it would include 3 pizza nights was the deal breaker and they must have enjoyed the new pizza bases so much that they have booked 3 pizza nights again for next year. Wow, totally blown away and if you are reading this – THANK YOU x
This year we have welcomed back our very lovely Angela Griffin and Lisa Faulkner with their families and friends. So fantastic to see them again, Angela has a blog ‘Angelas Angle’ take a look www.angelasangle.co.uk/blog/glamptastic-fun-fire-frolics, she has written a really nice piece about Boswarthen and the area, even where you can buy the best pasties.
Lately Adrian has been so busy with field work that I have hardly seen him, but now that the ploughing and seeding has ended he will have time to catch up on a few jobs before they really get busy with the winter work. I was reflecting the other day on the hours that Adrian works and how he does the same jobs 7 days a week, I really don’t know how he does it, it would be understandable if at the end of the year we made a huge profit but sadly that is not the case, I have come to the conclusion that farmers are eternal optimists.
There is such a lot to tell you but I am going to finish today and tell you the rest another time. I have found this quote from Thomas Jefferson, Agriculture is our wisest pursuit, because it will in the end contribute most to real wealth, good morals, and happiness. My one thought was, I must remember to tell our Bank Manager!
